Hayley Green SST10 2nd Draft

8 Jan

Timings: 2 minutes 30 seconds – 3 minutes (will depend on the dance sequence)

Tech Requirements: UV light, 3 mics on stands. (I will be sourcing costumes and UV pens)

Updates: I now have someone working on the music for the dance sequence. I still need 4 dances. In terms of seeing the words, I need to test this out but have a director on board with the show so will discuss with him the best way to make sure the words are visible without losing the UV effect. I also need 2/3 performers to perform the poem (I have yet to decide if I’ll be in the performance).

There is only one change to the scene as I realise I had two of the characters the wrong way round and the wrong person was getting cut off.

Scene One:

The stage in darkness, the 3 phases stand centre stage dressed in all black. A drumbeat is heard, and then music like a military call to arms. Figures gather around the phases, dressed in black, their hands and feet are visible through UV lighting. They judge them, studying them in choreographed movements. As they study them, the figures begin to write on their clothes with UV pens: flawed, scarred, cutter, liar, attention seeker, selfish, self harmer, crazy, morbid, Emo, mental, psycho, mad, weirdo. As the music begins to drown out to a single drumbeat, the light lifts on the faces of the three phases and the figures leave the stage.

 

Phase 3:

I did not cut off who I am.

I don’t think it matters to

those without scars;

 

Phase 2: flawed is easier to say than self h-a—

 

Phase 1:

I don’t think it matters how

my skin hangs together;

 

Phase 2: flawed is easier to say than self h-a—

 

Phase 3:

I am not fragile,

my skin hangs together.

 

Phase 2: I cope with mechanisms like –

 

Phase 3:

I am not fragile,

I only trimmed the edges.

 

Phase 2:

I cope with mechanisms like

those without scars.

 

All:     I only trimmed the edges,

I did not cut off who I am.
